I finally replaced the oldest feeder on the place with the AS 600# stand and fill. For years the game camera pics at this blind showed dozens of coons hanging on the feeder and being a nuisance. This feeder has been in place a month or so and I decided to finally post a couple pics. So far so good! I waited to see how everything has been going before giving my review. I would recommend this feeder for hunters with coon issues.
I replaced all 10 of mine with these and absolutely love them. I put Duke Dog Proof traps around my feeder pens as I had so many when I bought my place it was pathetic. 6 years later and I rarely even have a coon show up on cam. They work and are worth the price if you want to get rid of the coons. Also when I got rid of the coons on my place the turkey population exploded....... here is a current pic now.....
Shhhhhhhh better to be quiet than remove all doubt..
I liked the looks of those but was afraid there might be horn damage when the bucks tried to reach the corn directly under the feeder. So I went with the H-B instead. Really like the way the corn can't run under the feeder and the coons can't get in it
It throws it pretty well but I don't think it got the distance my standing feeder did. I will have to measure it eat time I'm there and let you know. I will be setting my duke dp traps there so I won't bean issue to check lol
I have the 1k version - while it does not have as good of throw as my elevated feeders - it has issue with coons (they can only get what the hogs leave them on the ground), and the hogs have not managed to carry it off yet (no damage or even really any movement).
Turkeys must know season is over - they were reveling under it today.
